I am looking at upgrading to Windows XP Professional x64 (64-bit).  Eclipse (for Java development) is what I spend most of my time using, so I want to make sure I won't have any issues with Eclipse running on XP x64 before I move to it.

So, my question is 2 parts:

1) Will I run into any compatibility issues runnin Eclipse on XP x64?

2) Will I see a performance improvement running Eclipse on XP x64 versus XP x86?

1) Sure you can, but have a look at this first (bug in milestone build):

http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.platform.swt/msg39668.html

2) Not really, most performance could come from JVM, but the 64 bit JVM is not much faster (if faster at all) than the 32 bit VM. There is some better handling of long and more registers. bit the registers are also wider. This seems to level out.

Note that I haven't tried running on XP 64 bit myself.

From here:
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/
It looks like there is no 64-bit version of Eclipse for Windows - only for Linux.  Is this correct?  If so, any idea if a 64-bit version for Windows is planned in the near future?

Thanks!
